Health problems and diseases have affected Haitian immigrants trying to enter Brazil and residing in the country. Reporting Agency proved that Brazil is also criticizes the situation of Haitians in Iñapari, the Peruvian city neighboring Assis Brazil (AC). On last Friday, August 17, according to the reports of immigrants as Junior Saint-Jean, which already has good standing at the border, they were transferred to two wooden shacks.

Already on the Brazilian side, Haitian women, most with problems of urinary tract infection, detected by hospital doctors de Assis Brazil, live in barracks separate from men. They are 26 and occupy one room, in which there is no electricity. They sleep on mats donated by the community, make their physiological needs in the bush, in the area near the bed of the Rio Acre. When they receive donations of water, use to make food. Food is also donated.

We live like animals. The Peruvian government does not give us any support since we got here, Junior said Saint-Jean. In the men's shed, the situation is similar. There are 70 in all, divided into six apartments, one of them separately for Haitians who are more impaired health.

"The mosquitoes bite us all night. Wound We covered without any medical treatment"

The towns of Assisi and Iñapari Brazil are located in a region of the Amazon where leishmaniasis is endemic, said the general practitioner hospital in the Brazilian city, Everton Coast. Nearly all men have their bodies covered with small wounds, as was shown by the entry Ebetch Nerizier illegal immigrant, 26 years. Mosquitoes bite us all night. We wound covered and without any medical treatment. Some, stress, think up killing himself.

Asked why he did not return to Haiti, with so many problems they face in entering the Brazilian territory, Nerizier was straightforward: We do not want to work in Peru, because we could not enter Brazil. We want to work in Brazil, earning a little more money to send to our families who were in Haiti. There is worse, has nothing.

The presence of 96 Haitians Iñapari, where they try to regularize documents so they can work in Brazil, generates the same kind of reaction both among those living on the Peruvian side as among those in neighboring Brazil Assisi, Acre. Residents of both cities claim that Haitians refuse to work, but at the same time, recognize that, without food, water and energy, as there are living nearly four months in the town of Iñapari, you can not continue.
